Genesis 2020 | March 13-15, 2020 | $179

Genesis Senior High Event

Genesis is an event geared specifically for 9th-12th grade youth groups and takes place at Grand Traverse Resort in northern Michigan. There’s something fantastic that takes place when over 1200 leaders and teens gather together from across the Great Lakes Region to worship and grow! At Genesis, you will have the opportunity to attend four Large Group Sessions with Joseph Sojourner, Blake Eason and the Genesis Worship Team (each followed up by your own group time to discuss the session), serve as a group at our Saturday Service Project, and enjoy numerous recreational opportunities in some pretty fantastic accommodations. Your registration fee includes two nights lodging, 3 meals Saturday, breakfast Sunday, and all scheduled events/activities. We are pleased to be able to offer the same rate as 2018 thanks to some fantastic donors!


This event doesn’t run without the help of a small army of volunteers! They help with things like onsite registration, elevators, merchandise booths, recreation, hospitality and more! You will be contacted via email by December 31st regarding your acceptance or decline. As much as we would like to accept everyone who applies, we may not be able to. Your interest is greatly appreciated either way! (All volunteers provide their own transportation. Genesis provides meals and lodging (2 per room) once you are on site.)

We are at capacity, but sometimes have cancellations. Feel free to apply to volunteer and we will reach out if a position opens up before the event.

Group Registration

Group Registration is now open! It’s important we receive your Group Registration as soon as possible so that we can keep you up-to-date with all details and timelines for individual registration. Reservations for Genesis are on a first come, first served basis. We will try our best to accommodate any Group Registration submitted after November 1, but availability is not guaranteed.

Individual Registration

You will need your insurance, medical information, and emergency contact numbers as you sign up. You will also be able to preorder apparel. Your Youth Director will collect funds due. Upon completing the online registration, you will have the opportunity to donate to our event mission partner. An offering will also be taken at the event should you prefer that. Youth under 18 must have a parent present when signing up.  All registrations are non-refundable, but we will allow a student to find someone of the same gender to take their place in the event they can no longer attend.
